While visiting his hometown during Christmas, a man comes face-to-face with his old high school crush whom he was best friends with -- a woman whose rejection of him turned him into a ferocious womanizer.
After finding a wallet in the street, Tepper calls the owner the owner in order to return it. After making the call, however, he discovers that the lottery ticket inside is a $6 million winner. To add to things, his friends are on their way over for their weekly poker night, and the group tradition is to bet their lottery tickets. When the wallet's owner shows up and joins the game, who will walk out as the winner? Written by

"Coop", the 5th poker buddy who couldn't make it to that night's game is shown in the photo that Bolan looks at. He is "played" in the photo by the film's writer/director 'Jeff Probst (I)'. See more »
Story is set in United States (actually filmed in Canada) but date on document found in wallet is written in numeric day/month/year style instead of month/day/year style actually used in US. See more »
[knocking on her door]
Mrs. Darmsetter? Hey... You left your door open again.
Heaven sake, I wonder how did that happen.
Yes well, how is everything?
Well, I'm worried about my mail. I think someone's stealing it. Because I haven't received any letters from my kids in a long time, and they always write.
Well, are they taking all your mail or just the letters?
Just the letters. You'd think they'd take everything else, wouldn't you? They don't.

Despite the fact that this movie takes place in one location, it does not drag or get boring - that in and of itself is a HUGE accomplishment! I thought the story was great how it put the main character into a sticky situation. All the characters had distinct personalities, which kept their conversations entertaining. The psychological suspense was strong. It's a movie wrought with tension. I applaud an indie filmmaker (Jeff Probst) for pulling off a good movie on a budget that is tiny compared to the studio budgets.
If you liked it, watch the director's commentary. Jeff Probst is very open about the process and how this film came into fruition (before he got his Survivor gig, by the way).
If you are looking for an indie film with some humor, psychological suspense, and good acting, check out this film.
